Our goal is to enable the analysis of anything, by anyone, anywhere.
We have developed the world’s first and only nanopore DNA and RNA sequencing platform.
It’s a new generation of sequencing technology; the only one to offer: scalability to portable or ultra-high throughput formats, real-time data delivery, and the ability to elucidate rich biological data.View products
Use of the technology
The platform is used by scientific researchers to answer questions about the biology of people, plants, animals, pathogens and environments. It is also increasingly being used in ‘applied’ settings such as clinical diagnostics, epidemiology and food safety. It is our goal to enable users to answer a wide range of important biological questions that solve real-world challenges, whether in healthcare, epidemiology, environmental science, food and agriculture or education.Find out more
